Atlético Marbella had its heyday in the mid-1990s, with four consecutive appearances in the second division, having spent the vast majority of its early existence in the third (after Segunda División B was created in 1977, it became the fourth level) and the regional leagues.
Until 1995 the club was owned by Jesús Gil, a controversial businessman and also mayor of Marbella, as well as the chairman of Atlético Madrid. Subsequently, he sold it to Slobodan "Boban" Petrović, an entrepreneur from Serbia.
Finally, in 1997, CA Marbella disappeared, due to the many debts contracted in previous seasons.
